Looking for something to do this weekend with the kids? Sign them up for the kids marathon for the Cox Rhodes Race at Roger Williams Park on Saturday April 30.
Cox Rhode Races has teamed up with Munroe Dairy, Shape Up RI and Roger Williams Park Zoo in an effort to get kids to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle through the Kids Marathon.
After the scheduled 8:45 A.M. start for the run/walk, kids will have an opportunity to complete the “marathon” by taking part in a scavenger hunt at Roger Williams Park Zoo. The 25-point scavenger hunt will promote healthy lifestyles, proper nutrition, exercise and more. There will be smaller races of varying distances for younger children as well. The race will start and finish in lot B at the Zoo. Cool bonus for the kids is of course, their own racing tee shirt, a pass to the zoo and after race refreshments. Booger, Mudget and I will be there bright and early with our "super fast" running shoes. Booger has already stated that he "isn't worried about coming in last, because there will be plenty of kids smaller than [him]." Good to know...
Dora and Diego will be there, too. I am just so excited! Can you sense the sarcasm? I know my kids are going to be way more thrilled than me to see the Nickelodeon gruesome two-some. But regardless, this new event is part of the 2011 Cox Providence Rhode Races weekend, in which Kyle is racing. It helps promote health and well being for our kids. Not only that, it promotes sleep that my kids will hopefully do Saturday night.
